Chicago-based photographer Todd Baxter’s series “Owl Scouts” follows the adventures and misfortunes of two fictional Owl Scout kids, a boy and girl. The narrative series explores what happens when the scouts become lost in the woods and experience a chain of worst case scenarios. The bold colors and active compositions create a cinematic feel that draws the viewer into each scene.

When we think of Other’s work we associate it with trains because it’s where we first saw his monikers and they have always stood out amongst the hoards of other doodles. This new piece by him in Chicago is not on a train, but is of a train. The Canadian artist beautifully painted an old steam engine towing a small log cabin and a multi-colored head in an undisclosed location.
